Feedback to the commercial pilot

Show pilot MSP

Beginning August 2, 2021, Via Mobility Services will launch a pilot program serving people and communities in rural parts of southwestern Weld County and southeastern Larimer County.

This pilot service will be available to those residing in or near the communities of Mead, Johnstown, Milliken, Gilcrest, Platteville, Fort Lupton, Lochbuie and parts of the Berthoud area as detailed on the project area map. Via will transport individuals to destinations within the defined service area as well as surrounding locations such as Brighton, Boulder County and possibly Greeley and Loveland. The pilot is free until the end of 2021 and is open to the general public, including people using a mobility device. The operating hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The Via and North Front Range MPO are currently seeking feedback to assess the transportation needs of potential drivers in the area. The results of this survey will guide the final decision on the specific service offerings for this pilot project. All survey responses should be submitted before Sunday, August 1, 2021.

Survey on accessibility and disabled access in the planning stage

Temple University

Creating a basis for an accessible planning survey

One in four Americans lives with a disability, according to the CDC, but disability is rarely considered when planning social and built environments. The American Planning Association has no department or interest group that represents more than a quarter of the American population, and rarely do planning, architecture, or engineering schools offer courses beyond ADA compliance.

Take this survey to fill the gap in planning practice and training. Hopefully this platform will be just the beginning of a move toward planning for access for all, where planning standards will shift from ADA compliance to active inclusion and inclusion of disabilities.
